The Wagin Woolorama is held in early March every year at Wagin’s Recreation Park and Oval. It’s a huge complex that’s very busy during the Woolorama. During other times of the year, it’s quiet and away from town streetlights which makes it very convenient if you have a telescope.

There are some lights within the complex. To get away from all these lights, there’s an oval on the west side usually used for a trotting training track. This area is dark and very open which makes it great if you’d like to set up a telescope for the night.
